what to expect from your modular home builder

Save Time With Modular

One of the most appealing aspects of modular homes is the time that can be saved when building a modular home. Unlike site-built homes, modular homes do not have to wait until the foundation is poured and dried to start construction. In fact, there are several processes that are able to be accomplished simultaneously that would otherwise take months to complete in a site-built home.
We work with our builders very closely to ensure that all the duties that need to be done are completed before the home is delivered. We do this so that you can move into your new home as soon as possible. Here are some of the actions that you can expect your builder to complete throughout the modular home building process:

What To Expect Before the Set

Firstly, your builder should examine your property thoroughly. They should conduct tasks such as exploratory digging for soil testing to determine the best options for your foundation.
After these initial tests are completed, your builder should begin prepping your land for the delivery of your home. About a month before your home is ready to be shipped, you builder should start on jobs like:
  • Designating an area for the construction trucks and the crane to operate
  • Leveling the building area
  • Building the foundation
  • Preparing utility connections (gas, electricity, water, etc.)

What To Expect After the Set

After your home is delivered, set by the crane, and weather-proofed by the set crew, your builder still has work to do. Your builder can start on the site work that needs to be completed such as:

  • Building any exterior structures to complete your home (porches, carports, garages, etc.)
  • Hooking up and testing utilities
  • Custom interior and trim work as required by your plan
  • Bring in an inspector to issue a certificate of occupancy
